<And they begged repeatedly not to order them to go into the abyss_2019>is the work of finding a hole between the things that are subordinate to meaning, the intersectionality of veganism and feminism. With regards to otherness (pig), the artist has tried to find the definition of 'Otherness'. It's not a person who is not me, myself rather, it is something already in me, but not completely my own. She has been researching these ideas through the poetry of Kim Hye-soon. In her poetry, the pig grunts and asks questions, bursts out with leachate, and keeps returning in various ways by changing their face. The video begins with a story about the unnamed ones, the unnumbered things, things that only exist with faces, and the garbage state with no meaning left. second half of the video is about the Navajo people, who have lived for hundreds of years as shepherds and weavers in the South Western United States where they reconstruct nature with sheep in a landscape destroyed by coal mining. The artist visited this area earlier in 2019 and joined their weaving event. There are various opinions surrounding veganism. There are people who are demonstrating on the street, there are academic papers, lecture series, international conferences, etc. The artist is oriented towards veganism, but at the same time works in a manner that both questions and doubts. Often she was subordinate to big terms like "animal rights," but soon she became sympathetic to the idea that there is no outside of killing. She speaks about the hole within veganism. As a result, the story flows in the overlapping space between killing and saving.
